The extension wing on my table saw was always cluttered with “stuff” that I use with the saw; ear and eye protection, featherboards, push sticks, Gripper, Mag-switch stop blocks, etc. When I adjusted the fence I usually had to “push” these things aside and hope that nothing was pushed off the table.
I added 2 drawers to hold those things that always seemed to accumulate. Most folks have built a complete unit on casters to occupy the space under the extension wings but since I already have blade storage, I didn’t need that much additional storage…just remove the clutter from the top!
I used 1/2” Baltic Birch ply for everything except the Walnut trim around the drawers and openings.
I also painted the case with jet black lacquer to match the SawStop and left the drawer fronts natural finished with 2 coats of Arm-R-Seal.
I screwed some plywood brackets to the underside of the extension wing to mount the drawer unit.
The last 2 pictures show the before and after!
